During my recent trip back to KL, I visited Malaysia’s very first Magnum Cafe, located at the heart of Mid Valley Megamall. I have heard a lot about the hype and craze of Magnum Cafe from social media with long queues of customers looking forward to their customised ice cream when it first opened last year. When I was there, luckily, there was no queue and I was able to customise my ice cream pretty quickly.
There are two floors at Magnum Cafe. The ground floor is only for customising your very own Magnum ice cream and the first floor is for dine in, should you choose to have a meal. Apart from ice cream and desserts, the Magnum Cafe also serves savoury foods like snacks, soups and pastas.
I chose to customise my very own Magnum Ice Cream which costs RM9.90. There are four steps to customising your own Magnum ice cream which involves coating, topping, drizzling and setting. To start, you choose either a chocolate brownie or classic vanilla flavour. The second step is the fun part – you get to select up to three toppings from the classic, special and experimental range. There’s almonds, goji berries, dark chocolate pearls, freeze dried raspberries, rose petals, chilli flakes to assorted nuts, just to name a few. The world is your oyster – it’s completely up to you on how you want to customise your ice cream. Apparently, there are 250,000 possible combinations with the toppings available!
Choose from the range of toppings for your own customised ice cream!
The final look of your ice cream is determined by choosing from dark, milk or white chocolate drizzle. The last step involves resting the ice cream for two minutes for the chocolate to set. And voila, you have your very own customised Magnum Ice Cream which you can indulge in. Don’t forget to share it with your friends on social media.

Still can’t decide? You can also choose from the many pre-designed Magnum from their menu which also costs RM9.90. Mum had the Sweet Fantasy which comprises of Chocolate Brownie ice cream, white chocolate with toppings of dried mango, goji berries and chocolate chip cookies, drizzled on top with dark chocolate.
If you happen to be at Mid Valley Megamall at KL shopping around, I recommend you to take a break from shopping and visit Magnum Cafe to get your ice cream fix. It was an enjoyable and interesting experience and I can’t wait to try the other possible combinations of toppings and flavours!
